Abstract

We present the description of the LTG entry in the SemEval-2016 Complex Word Identification (CWI) task, which aimed to develop systems for identifying complex words in English sentences. Our entry focused on the use of contextual language model features and the application of ensemble classification methods. Both of our systems achieved good performance, ranking in 2nd and 3rd place overall in terms of F-Score.
